DIRECTIONS

  • Place the cubed eggplant in a colander, salt it and let it drain for 20 minutes. Rinse well and set aside. Remove all the skin and fat from the chicken pieces. Heat a large frying pan and add 1 tablespoon of the oil.
  • Saute the chicken in 2 batches until opaque on both sides (a few minutes). Set aside. Heat a 6- to 8-quart casserole and add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil. Add the onion, garlic and eggplant. Saute over low heat until the onion is just tender, about 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Add the chicken stock, cinnamon sticks, curry powder, cumin, turmeric and black pepper. Stir, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the dark chicken meat along with the carrot, zucchini, turnip and red pepper. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes.
  • Add the chicken breasts, tomato, raisins and 1 tablespoon of the coriander, pushing down lightly to be sure the ingredients are covered by the liquid. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes more.
  • Salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot in deep soup bowls on top of rice, noodles or couscous, garnishing the top with the remaining coriander.
